It’s The Little Things: Blogging Pals

I’ve been blogging since 2009 and when I first started I didn’t know what to expect. The blogging world seemed larger than life and I had no idea how to maneuver through it. Since then, not only have I learned my way around, I’ve also met some amazing people from all over. People like you. Blogging pals are definitely one of the little things in life that I truly appreciate. And no one understands the power of blogging connections like other bloggers.

Let me take this moment to tell all of you who stopped by on last Friday’s post about my daughter’s upcoming university enrollment to extend good wishes, leave gratifying comments and share in my joy: Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You really made my day.
Also, I smiled at many of the comments left on yesterday’s post. I want to assure you that it was not an April fool’s joke. I truly intend to share the story of how the most amazing man in the world and I eventually crossed paths. What the heck. It’ll make for many blog posts. And that's always a bonus.

Thanks for everything, my blogging pals. You are the best!

    2. It really is cool. Someday we shall meet up in real life.

      It's Sunday now .. oven preheating for a very late breakfast. I forgot to take my mascara off last night so now I look like Alice Cooper, but I don't care, we still have one more day off.

      Boogie boogie.

    3. We will absolutely meet one day. And it'll be great. We are winding up the weekend. Hubby was off on Friday and we've spent a lot of time outdoors. The days were beautiful. A little chilly but sunny and gorgeous.

  2. I never imagined I'd make friends through blogging, much less so many great friends.
    It's a joy to know you, Martha. Thank goodness you're nothing like the Martha that's taken over my blog this month.

    1. Thank you, Lorraine. I can't wait to meet you one day. You're not too far and eventually we'll see each other. Perhaps this summer.

  6. How cute we both wrote about blogging today :) It is such a wonderful community out here; caring, generous, loving, and we might not even meet face to face :)

    It is good to have a theme to write about (as you will as you share the story of meeting your hubby). It helps for fodder when one can't think of anything else to write about :)
